not saying this is your problem but when my ac was only blowing hot air it was because of the little plastic electric motor thingy under the dash behind the glove box. i dont know what its called but it is supposed to rotate when you turn your climate control knob. well mine wasnt rotating so i had to manually make it so it would blow cold air. sorry for the lack of mechanical names for parts but im sure someone here knows what im talking about

oh and by the way it was a PITA to take it out but i think its worth checking

its your blower fan and then you have blower doors which directs the airflow to different passages like defrost, feet, heater...are your switches electric or mechanical?
